Imagine fragrant, essential oils and incense seducing you into a space where natural hair, Afrocentric fashion and jewelry, hair care education and self care are all celebrated. That curvy curlies, is Nappywood LA!
One of the largest natural hair events in Southern California, Nappywood provides hair and healthcare education, live performances and vendors from around the country. It was a great opportunity for naturalistas, bloggers, vloggers and stylists to glean ideas and information from each other, in the spirit of community and sisterhood. I ran into curlfriends I've know since junior high school and was too excited to see that we have all embraced our coils and kinks!
Exhilarating hardly describes how great it felt and feels to be a part of this movement. Huge shout out Lydia Boyd of La Curly Girls, Kelsie Lyn of Au Natural Love and Ray Parker and Mike Kimani of LRC Healthy Hair Care, for the amazing energy and love.
